Marc has spent virtually his entire life in the Tri-State area, attending college at IU, and at various times hanging his hat in Montgomery, Clifton, Oakley, Mt. Lookout and Mason. After stints in Portland, OR and Greensboro, NC he got tired of the shipping costs for LaRosa's and Montgomery Inn and came home.
Amazon has hosted radio programs for over ten years, with a timely mix of politics, local issues, sports and entertainment. His 1999 "Tournament of Babes" is still considered one of this city's cultural milestones, on par with the Mapplethorpe exhibit and the Uncle Al Show.
Marc's top accomplishments include winning the Sycamore Junior High 8th grade basketball Mr. Defense award, being the youngest kid ever suspended from his middle school and injuring Bill Cunningham playing racquetball. He enjoys movies (Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Gladiator, Wedding Crashers), TV (Survivor, Friday Night Lights, Modern Family) and music (27 Jimmy Buffett concerts at Riverbend, and counting). In fact, before he met his lovely wife, he held the career record for most women bummed out at a single concert (all of them).
Marc lives in Mason with his wife and two children, where he spends his weekends shuttling from soccer game to baseball game to basketball game, while occasionally wishing the games could be played in a bar.
(Erica Ritz) -- The teenage actor who plays the “half” in the hit CBS comedy “Two and a Half Men” says the show is “filth” and, through a video posted by a Christian church, has urged viewers not to watch it.
Nineteen-year-old Angus T. Jones has been on the show since he was 10 but says he no longer wants to be on it.
In a YouTube video that appears to be his testimony, Jones laughs in acknowledgement that he is coming out against his own show, but says:
“Two and a Half Men– if you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching [it]…I’m on Two and a Half Men; I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth.
Please– it’s, you know, people say it’s just ‘entertainment.’ The fact that it’s entertainment– do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make…it’s bad news.
The video was posted by the Forerunner Christian Church in California, where Jones says he went to meet his spiritual needs.
Show producer Warner Bros. Television has no comment. CBS hasn’t responded to a request for comment left Monday.
The show stars Jon Cryer as Jones’ uptight dad and originally featured Charlie Sheen as his hedonistic philandering uncle, but Sheen was replaced by Ashton Kutcher.
The 15-minute video primarily concerns Jones’ spiritual journey, though– how he discovered the predominantly black church where he feels most comfortable, and how his life has changed since he started keeping the Sabbath.
